Finally brought PUNTO 1.3 Emotion home after a year long wait . Spent 5 years with Santro Xing And Swift diesel . Sold off Santro in exchange for punto . Never wanted to sell Santro but had to due to budget constrains . Summer 2010 i was suffering from a chest tumour and condition worsened when i lost my job , Sometimes i used to sit utterly lost and dazed and othertimes downcast head with abstracted gaze , time kept flowing and i recovered in almost a year . Than was gripped by loan i took from frds relatives for hospital bills . Luckily i got job to write for Sanjh, a quarterly magazine in Canada . Now working as research analyst in BBC Bristol . My job requires journeys to far ends or north india . i was always looking for a comfortable ride , both santro and swift are very bumpy on roads i travel . So started to look for Hatch . My first choice was i20 simply because i bought santro with my salary and was biased towards Hyundai . Visited showroom of Hyundai near to my home , they were not interested in selling or telling anything . First thing they told me is 3 months waiting period , i felt bad on their behaviour, Hyundai in that time was drowned in fame of fluidic verna . Test drive is far thing they also didnt had brochure . My manager have i20 asta crdi , i drove his car , everything was ok power , suspension . But AC was terrible , even my manager was frustrated of that . So it was obvious rejected. One can compromise many features but AC have to be good in indian cars . Polo tried , waited for 5 min atleast before SE came finishing gossip with Receptionist , and keep on telling VW is very big brand and sells big cars , no.1 in Europe, polo is just for india . Got my signatures atleast 10 times just to give test drive . Polo was good both ride and comfort . ACC may not be a big thing but omission in 7.5 lac premium hatch is intolerable i my view. than showed me their service centre , i noticed the spares and labour is too much and not justified . Swift we already have and dont want another . Punto was never considered . One day mom saw punto on road and asked me which car , i told her than she said why dont u go for this it looks so beautiful . I said after sales is bad and watever i knew , thats y its so less on road . Than mom said i should consider Punto , its look elegant and i will not be bored to see her like alto or swift , so many on roads. So visited Tata-Fiat . A man welcomed me and took me to concerned SE . SE was speaking english which could not be understood , i asked him to speak hindi or punjabi . Than he opened up , started with brochure , told prices and took me to each model showing differences . It was good to see sales person so involved and wanting to sell the car . Test drive car was not available , but he promised to come to my home by evening , and he was exact on time and I drove it for 20kms Than jumped to rear seat , it was comfortable unlike swift , angled very well . I liked both car ans sales staff , but phobia of after sales was not going . Read many reviews , ownership experiences . My top priority was comfort( Ride-AC-Equipment) , everycar has one or two missing things and Punto became most eligible . Read more and more on Fiat and Punto . Also govt price hike on diesels was in mind . Finally booked 1.3 emotion . Loan took 10 days to pass , as my salary is in foreign currency and i am not paying any taxes . Paid half and half was loaned. Punto emotion has so many things equipments , and in night the effect of ACC-CD PLAYER-SPEEDO looks cool .controls on steering are illuminated along with Power window panel , even 12v SOCKET was illuminated . Feels like sitting in cockpit. Few pics of today , Tomorrow will paste many detailed pics , inside out .
